DETROITOct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Today, from Detroit to New York City, Bentonville to ChicagoDallas to Minneapolis, and Toronto to London, more than 350 employees of The Mars Agency will come together as one, on behalf of nonprofit, community organizations in need of help.

Employees will have hands-on roles in 11 cities across the globe, helping nearly 25 individual and highly-varied organizations. Some will be helping ideate and reimagine recycled materials, others will be sorting and stocking donated food, clothing and home goods for families who are allowed to shop free-of-charge, and still others will be delivering nourishing meals and vital companionship to the homebound elderly.

Some of the organizations are widely known, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, City Meals on Wheels and the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Others are much smaller and  localized associations, like the St. Felix Centre in Toronto, where the Agency will be providing assistance to the homeless and the Camden Foodbank in the United Kingdom, where the communal areas will be thoroughly cleaned for guests.

Its Global Citizenship Day is not a one-and-done deal. The Mars Agency is actually committed and active in supporting community programs year-round.

“We’ve made community growth and development one of our core pillars, equal to the growth of our clients, employees and company. That’s why we close our offices and engage with organizations that most need our help and that are passion points for our employees,” said Ken Barnett, Global CEO.
